I didn't interpret that from the article. The article never mentioned feminists, and it never said that men aren't allowed to watch and enjoy movies with female protagonists. The article did strongly play on stereotypes though, which I didn't like.

It's not a matter of liking/disliking. It's about being told what we can or can't watch/enjoy.

If you look you'll see I put girl and guy in quotes, as those are not how I see them. Gender stereotypes are an issue, but not one that is all on feminists as men do it just as much as women do.

If you are going to go after feminists go after things that are actually on their hands, like fathers' rights in adoption and abortion cases, or the fact that woman on man violence, rape and harassment are marginalized and even dismissed.

Don't put words in their mouths that they didn't say, or actions they did not take. Go after what they are proud to be a part of that is wrong.

My Little Pony isn't a girl thing and Nerf isn't a guy thing. They're both things that ANYONE can enjoy. There's no reason to label movies, toys, games, music, etc with genders.

Also, addressing gender stereotypes IS an issues that should be taken care of. However, feminists only want what benefits them.

Feminist didn't do that. That has been done with books, movies, clothes, hairstyles etc.. for centuries.

And calling something a "girl" or "guy" thing does not mean others are not allowed to like or use it. My Little Pony is a "girl" thing, but no one stops my sons or husband from watching it. Nerf is a "guy" thing, but no one is stopping me from having my own personal Nerf weapons.

You keep saying feminist are not allowing men to like traditionally female things, but NOTHING you have shared backs that up.

Now, there are serious issues with modern feminism, which is why I do not call myself a feminist, but this is not one of them. You are making crap up instead of addressing the real issues.

Then why assign genders to movies in the first place? Why can't movies just be movies?

I did read the article and it did not say anything about men not being allowed to enjoy movies like this. Calling something a "girl" or "guy" film doesn't mean the other is not allowed to enjoy it or I would not be allowed to love The Transporter and would be forced to watch chick flicks.

lol I can tell... that's why the Feminist movement claimed 'Frozen' as their own and turned it into politics when it was actually just a film about two sisters.

Feminists aren't the people who are doing that. Feminists are against gendering movies

Actually, you're wrong. Movies like Cinderella are constantly being labelled as a "girl film". Why must we assign genders to movies? You obviously didn't read the article.

Feminism isn't telling you what you can and can't watch

I'm not wrong at all. I saw Cinderella last week and enjoyed it. It was a beautiful remake of a wonderful film! I certainly won't have feminism telling me what I can/can't watch.

I don't know where you got the idea that feminists think that. Most feminists believe that men and women both should be able to like what they like without worrying about traditional gender roles and would be delighted if men are open-minded enough to enjoy a "girl's" movie.

Third generation feminists? Never heard of such a thing, but I'll give you that. To be fair, the basis for the article was statistically supported trends. It had nothing to do with men and/or women issues beyond who was trotting their butts off to the movies to give their money away.

3rd Wave Feminism is a thing... and it's nothing like the previous feminist movements.

What feminists? Didn't "Feminism" die out as soon as we left the 1970s and the ERA movement behind? Who are these people you are referring to?

but if we have movies like gone girl where the women faked her death framed her husband then proceded to lie and her way back as the victim which Im sure some feminist cheer about I think its kind of a double standard

I saw no such suggestion anywhere in that article. At no time did it say men CAN'T enjoy them, only that they tend not to.

Yes really. Only a feminist would suggest these things.

I saw Cinderella last week and I enjoyed it a lot! It was such a beautiful film! I certainly won't allow Feminists to dictate what I can or can't watch! ^_^ I have my own mind.
